Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is on the second draft of the CIP Version 5 Standards – the second in a series of four sequential articles. The focus in Part II are the Low Impact Requirements, which have been mostly consolidated under a single requirement (CIP-003-5 R2). The project team’s primary intent is to ensure all Responsible Entities to develop policies for cyber security awareness, physical access control, electronic access control, and incident response.

The second draft of CIP-002-5 has been posted on the project web site for industry stakeholder review and a successive ballot. Clients have until May 21, 2012 to return comments and cast their votes.
